How it works

The fridges

The location at Folkets hus in inner Nørrebro has two fridges one which functions as a conventional fridge for storing food that needs to be kept cool and the other is known as a dry fridge (not turned on) which stores all the foods that do not need refrigeration, but need to be kept inside to stop rats and other creatures eating it.

The wet fridge is connected to the power and contains all the things that need refrigeration like: cooked food, dairy products and possibly fruit and veggies (to prolong their shelf life). The dry fridge is not connected to the power and is used to store dried goods like bread, pasta, rice, potatoes and root veggies. Basically all the uncooked food which does not need refrigerating or could be damaged by being refrigerated. 

Wet Fridge (like a regular fridge) – what should be inside?

  • Dairy products
  • Any other products that should be refrigerated normally.


Dry fridge (like a cupboard) – what should be inside?

  • Fruit and vegetables that do not need to be refrigerated. 
  • Bread and pastries
  • Dried foods like grains, pasta, flour, rice etc.

If you’re in doubt, think, where would I keep this in my home? Or where is this product kept in the supermarket? If you put it in your fridge, then put it in the wet fridge, if it’s something you’d keep in your pantry (kitchen cupboard) then put it in the dry fridge.
